    my question is why did you use corner blocks? I'm sure someone who can figure out how to wire a house with out burning it down can in just a couple of practice cuts can get those angles.

    Using linesman pliers hmmm. I didn't try that one!!!

    Although I have used them for everything else. I have used them with a screw driver to cut aluminum siding. Hang pictures drive nails. open beer cans and bottles

    The truth is why I used the blocks is in the corners I used three pieces of crown molding one in the corner. There wasn't a way to cut to get all three to come together that looked good.

    When I cut the two for the peak I put it together and it looked great but something was missing as far as looks. So I put one at the peak. By the way the angle was 6 degress

    you all are to funny

    Excuse ME!!!!! Satin was my choice as I have to live with it not you!!!!! In my opinion it looks more natural as wood is supposed to look like. It left no hazy milk finish as you described. There is alot of sun in that room all day long and with gloss it would have been a lot of glare hense my choice.

    Normally with clear finishes, one uses the maximum gloss for the undercoats and top coats it with the dulling finish of choice, or rubs/buffs it down/out, especially with water based formulas, to get a depth of finish (followed by a single matte or satin top coat or a rubbed out top coat, if a less glossy/reflective finish is the desired appearance). Later touch ups or refinish then involves sanding down/biting in/removing that final dulled coat, then new top coat, or a coat of gloss followed by a new top coat.

    Reap what you sow, and enjoy the fruits of your labors.
    I might have agreed with you as far as the milky finish if it was brushed on. But as I have noted it was sprayed on which is a much lighter coat. That is why 4 coats I understand your opinion and you have right to express it. Thanks for your input.

    Harry ... GREAT JOB.

    The finish you chose really makes the cedar pop .... looks nice.

    I know where we'll be sitting when I come down that way for a visit.
